Subway Construction Activities at York University - Removal of Equipment from Accident Site

October 28, 2011

Subway construction was halted on the York University campus following a fatal accident on October 11, 2011. The accident site, directly north of the Schulich Building, remains closed under order of the Ministry of Labour (MoL).

The Ministry of Labour has agreed to a plan to remove the mast of the upright damaged drilling machine adjacent to the Schulich Building. The remainder of the drilling machine will remain on the site as directed by MoL.

Starting early Saturday morning, October 29, 2011, two cranes and other equipment needed for the removal operation will be mobilized on the north side of the Schulich Building. The removal operation will continue over the weekend. At this time, no changes are expected to be necessary to current bus operations.

Localized lane closures may occur on York Boulevard, east of James Gilles Street, as equipment enters and leaves the site. Traffic control personnel will ensure safe traffic flow during this time.
